RCA Analog Video Input Card w/Analog Audio for DM® Switchers
Provides one multi-format analog video input for any DigitalMedia™ Switcher with modular plug-in input card slots.
The DMC-VID-RCA-A is an input card designed for use with any card-based Crestron® DigitalMedia™ Switcher. It provides one multi-format analog video input and one stereo analog audio input, with a complementary HDMI® pass-through output. The video input allows for the connection of component, S-Video, and composite video sources. It handles 480i NTSC and 576i PAL signals, as well as HD signals up to 1080p60.
Digital AV Converter
Using high-quality 30 bit sampling, the DMC-VID-RCA-A converts analog video signals to digital for distribution over the DigitalMedia network. Analog audio signals are converted to 24 bit digital.
Every DM® switcher input card includes an HDMI output port, which can be used to pass the audio and video input signals through to a local audio processor or video monitor, or to feed a second DM switcher for output expansion purposes.
Multi-format Analog AV to HDMI Converter
In addition to its use as an input card for DM switchers, the DMC-VID-RCA-A may also be used with the DMCI DigitalMedia Card Interface  to serve as an analog AV to HDMI signal convertor, and to detect and report input signal information to a Crestron control system.
To configure a DM switcher complete with input and output cards, cables, and other peripherals, please use the online DigitalMedia Switcher Configuration Tool.
